Osasuna vs. Real Madrid: Score, Grades and Post-Match Reaction

Real Madrid progressed through to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey with a routine 2-0 win over Osasuna, with the aggregate scoreline being 4-0.

The first half was something of a low-key, cagey affair with Osasuna starting the brighter and looking to get an early goal to get themselves back in the match. Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, they could ill afford any bad decision-making—but that's what happened for the opening goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit a dipping, swerving free-kick from 25 yards, but in truth it was straight at goalkeeper Andres who should have dealt far better with the effort.

It seemed a simple enough catch—but the Osasuna No. 13 opted to try and punch, instead only helping the ball into the net in a moment of comedy.

Any hopes of a comeback that Osasuna had were extinguished by that goal and the second, coming after the break, ended the game as a contest.

Jese showed good pace and strength down the right flank and cut the ball back to Angel Di Maria, who finished firmly into the far corner for 2-0 on the night.

The one disappointment for Real was a late red card for left-back Fabio Coentrao, who scythed down an attacker to earn his second yellow of the night with just a few minutes left to play.

The 4-0 aggregate scoreline didn't flatter Real with Osasuna again struggling to find any threat in the final third.
